Camping gives hassled urban dwellers a chance to escape the wild indoors, where man-eating washing machines and hand-clomping waffle-iron traps lurk for unsuspecting prey. Flee from savage household appliances with today's Groupon: for $55, you get two nights at a campsite for up to four people (up to a $90 value), including resort fees (a $20 value), at Crazy Horse Campground in Brodhead (up to a $110 total value).
Located on the banks of the shimmering Sugar River, Crazy Horse Campground hosts happy campers with a verdant expanse of nature and recreation. Two nights at a campsite offers guests their choice of standard, pull-through, riverfront, or full-hookup site, as well as water, 30-amp electrical outlets, and an available dump station. Once campers erect outdoor domiciles, foursomes can absorb nature's scenic wonders with rustic activities, such as a petting zoo, disc golf, swimming, and glow-in-the-dark mini golf, all of which are covered by the included resort fee for up to four people. City dwellers can swap concrete jungles for batting cages, volleyball, and a skate park, or toss horseshoes at tree stumps that look like Admiral Horatio Nelson.
Numerous off-site attractions include 23 miles of scenic Sugar River state bike trails and the aromatic Decatur Dairy cheese factory. Guests can also apply their Groupon toward a weekday cabin or cottage upgrade to accommodate bigger parties.
